A bit about Lifestyle posts
I cringe slightly at “lifestyle” but it’s the only heading I could think of that encapsulated random thoughts, home-related ideas, interior design (on a very, very basic level), health and so on. “Miscellaneous” seemed a step too vague.
I was inspired to write more for this theme after seeing a “lifestyle” picture in a magazine of someone sitting in an impossibly idyllic, comfy log cabin, fire roaring, sheepskin rugs, mug of steaming drink, happy smiling friends around; you have probably seen something similar, especially since “Hygge” has been a thing in the UK. At that moment, that was exactly how I wanted my life to be styled. I wrapped myself in our armchair throw, rediscovered a perfect huggable mug, made hot Ribena and curled up accordingly. It struck me that with a bit of imagination things around your own home can be altered to make something as simple and everyday as having a warm drink on a cold day feel more evocative of a holiday or an image of who/where you want to be for a few minutes.
There really is something about “lifestyle” that makes me go off on one about really pretentious-sounding ideas but the posts within Lifestyle are kind of about creating triggers around you that remind you of travels or just ideas for creating small spaces in your home or work environment that make you feel happier.
